Wolverine and Jubilee #1 (preview)

From Marvel: “STRAIGHT OUT OF THE PAGES OF X-MEN AND RIGHT INTO THE JUGULAR! Jubilee is about as far away from the ideal X-Man as it is possible for a 17-year-old minty fresh vampire to be. While the X-Men try to find a way to give her as normal a life as is inhumanly feasible, her decidedly abnormal vampire cravings will not be denied. Between that and her newfound powers, she’s winning the fights but not the popularity contests among most of the other X-Kids. Most…but not all. And just when Jubilee starts to think that there is no place for her anywhere, a group of vampire women make her an offer she can’t refuse. It seems like the perfect solution…unless Wolverine has anything to say about it!”

While it should perhaps be called ‘Jubilee and Wolverine’ instead of the other way around, I found this to be an extremely well-written issue, dealing quite effectively with the fallout of the vampire infestations of ‘X-Men’.
I don’t necessarily like what was done to Jubilee, but I do like how Kathryn Immonen is handling it, as well as some fun one liners.
“It’s time to do this my way.”
Anyone else care to share their reactions?
